Hi everybody!

As previously mentioned in the earlier blog entry about MCK studio, my friends & I are currently teaming up together to organize fun workshops here in Japan.

These workshops are for visiting tourists (Kanto region / Tokyo / Saitama) and fellow locals who are interested in getting crafty & learning new things!

If you have time to spare, please answer the survey here ❤️️

The team: Me, Allie & Anne!
